It’s more than the luck of the (Fighting) Irish.
For the second straight year, the University of Notre Dame is Forbes’ Top College of the Midwest. Notre Dame, which held steady at its No. 13 overall ranking, is also the highest ranked Catholic school.
Coming in at No. 2 and No. 3 are two Chicago-area schools: Northwestern Universityand the University of Chicago, respectively. Carleton College, a small private liberal arts school in Northfield, MN and the Midwest’s No. 1 in 2014, held its fourth-place spot again this year.
